Hello, I have received same message too. These stupid swindlers think that they can deceive somebody. My advice, ignore these messages.

How can these phishers actually use the GENUINE Moneybookers website to pull off this scam, this is a new level!!! Normally, they use a different website, but one that is VERY similar to the genuine one, perhaps transposed characters, slight misspeling, etc.

The only thing I can imagine that the underlying link was pointing somewhere else, just like in the typical "important e-mail for customers of XYZ bank" phishing scam.

I strongly suggest that anyone using IE turn the Status Bar on in the browser. (Go up to 'View' then make sure there's a check mark beside Status Bar.) If you hold your cursor over a clickable link, the actual link it's directing you to will show up in the status bar. I'm sure there are spammers and scammers who have found a way around this, but for now, it does help in most cases.
